US investigating possible mysterious directed energy attack near White House

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN)Federal agencies are investigating at least two possible incidents on US soil, including one near the White House in November of last year, that appear similar to mysterious, invisible attacks that have led to debilitating symptoms for dozens of US personnel abroad.

Multiple sources familiar with the matter tell CNN that while the Pentagon and other agencies probing the matter have reached no clear conclusions on what happened, the fact that such an attack might have taken place so close to the White House is particularly alarming.

----------------

Those sickened reported similar symptoms to CIA and State Department personnel impacted overseas, and officials quickly began to investigate the incident as a possible "Havana syndrome" attack. That name refers to unexplained symptoms that US personnel in Cuba began experiencing in late 2016 -- a varying set of complaints that includes ear popping, vertigo, pounding headaches and nausea, sometimes accompanied by an unidentified "piercing directional noise."

1. This is Russian Escalation, they are Attacking US Citizens on US soil

I have no doubt Joe is on this and will allow US IC to do what needs to be done.

4. Putin has been getting pretty feisty lately

Troops on the Ukraine border, planes buzzing around Alaska, interfering in elections. Its like he's spoiling for a fight.

6. Well he's been fussing around with these things for years

Don’t like seeing them on US soil, or anywhere really. Very creepy accounts of what they do in this great GQ story.

Snip
Whoever was behind the attacks also began going after Americans on American soil. An American diplomat and his spouse, who had been hit when they were stationed in China, traveled to Philadelphia to get specialized treatment at the University of Pennsylvania. One night in June 2018, according to three government sources, the couple was startled awake by a sound and pressure in their heads similar to what they had felt back in China. On the advice of FBI agents, the family moved to a hotel, but on their second night there, they were again awoken in the early morning hours. Terrified, the parents ran into the room where their children were sleeping to find them moving in their sleep, bizarrely and in unison. In the weeks afterward, the children developed vision and balance difficulties.

7. I saw this couple on 60 Minutes

Didn't realize they had been hit again. They were severely affected by it. My heart goes out to them.

17. This is 21st century warfare

All our trained combat ready troops can't protect us from these kinds of assaults. We need to reconsider how we spend our defense dollars. There will be very few "boots on the ground" scenarios in the coming years and our adversaries can do far more damage in other less costly ways.

That story is absolutely horrifying. Thanks for sharing, I'd missed it.

12. ADS is one of the many new crowd control systems

The ADS, a non-lethal directed-energy weapon, projects a very short duration focused beam of millimeter waves at a frequency of 95 gigahertz. A microwave oven operates at 2.45 GHz. At the much higher frequency of 95 GHz, the associated directed energy wavelength is very short and only physically capable of reaching a skin depth of about 1/64 of an inch. The ADS provides a quick and reversible skin surface heating sensation that does not penetrate into the target.

14. Thanks. I learned that ADS is only a tiny part of a huge weapons market that's existed for decades.

What disgusting humans think such kinds of evil. It's a kind of cowardly torture from afar to sicken and damage bodies from afar.

PURE. EVIL.

Christian pro-lifers should be protesting this evil weapons market and production.

23. I bet almost all of those 'pro-lifers'

are the same slime making these weapons and selling them to whomever has the cash. Then, they want to preach to me?? To quote Lou Mae Farmer, "I am sick and tired of being sick and tired!" Toss in 'endangered by despicable people' to that saying, and you get the idea...

16. It certainly would explain how Putin/Trump/RepubliCONs

were able to perform non surgical lobotomy's on 70 Million Voters..........

Maybe Putin figured out a way to transmit it via TV sets and sends it out on every Fox News network across the nation??????

9. I wonder what it takes to get a clear conclusion?


The Mystery of the Immaculate Concussion
October 19, 2020
BY JULIA IOFFE
======================================================
By now, this was no longer a novel occurrence, and CIA people had come to call it “getting hit.” One senior intelligence officer in EEMC, the Center Polymeropoulos used to run, had gotten hit twice while traveling under cover, first in Poland in the spring of 2019, then again in Tbilisi, Georgia, that fall. He, too, was diagnosed with occipital neuralgia and experienced symptoms similar to Polymeropoulos’s. (He declined to be interviewed for this article.)
=========================
According to these sources, the attacks were becoming increasingly daring: One of the CIA officials hit in Australia and Taiwan was among the agency’s five highest-ranking officials.

According to three sources familiar with the incident, a White House staffer was hit while walking her dog in Arlington, Virginia. Her dog started seizing up. Then she felt it too: a high-pitched ringing in her ears, an intense headache, and a tingling on the side of her face.

============
Then, shortly after Thanksgiving 2019, according to three sources familiar with the incident, a White House staffer was hit while walking her dog in Arlington, Virginia, a suburb of Washington, D.C. According to a government source familiar with the incident, the staffer passed a parked van. A man got out and walked past her. Her dog started seizing up. Then she felt it too: a high-pitched ringing in her ears, an intense headache, and a tingling on the side of her face.

According to the source, this had happened to the staffer before. In August 2019, she had accompanied John Bolton, who was then the national security adviser, on a trip to London. The staffer, whom GQ is not identifying out of concerns for her privacy, did not respond to requests for comment. According to the government source, she was in her hotel room when she suddenly felt a tingling in the side of her head that was facing the window. The intense pressure in her head was accompanied by a tinning in her ears. When she left the room, the symptoms stopped. She reported the incident to the Secret Service because it was uncannily similar to the symptoms described by American diplomats who had served in Cuba and China.

18. Could this be the legendary "Jewish space laser" wannabes writ too large for their own good?

Don' thing' so. The Whitehouse last November? This is not the ideal test case exemplar for "debilitating energies" from "another" force.

Give me rhyme and give me reason, but give me reason first. Certainly it's not inconceivable that the MIC has been caught with its huge American pants down, aiming its lens at the Earth's surface when the threat is from orbiting mischief. Silly profiteers, don't they understand their scrip is non-negotiable in zero Gee.

Sorry, I wax frivolity.

22. Putin's actions is neither discreet nor advanced ...

... when he tried to kill somebody in the UK, he did it crudely and obviously, leaving a radioactive footprint all the way back home.

So yes, these energy attack speculation is tinfoil territory.

And yes, there are such weird weapons around, but if they were any good, they would be visible on the battle fields - not used for giving mild symptoms to some diplomats and their dogs.

If this is not just hysteria, the culprit might be on the roof of the US embassies themselves - all their own antenna systems.

24. How much does anyone want to bet

That the vagueness and slow response on this topic means that either we have something just like it and have been doing the same thing (but don't want to get called out over it), or some (or most) of the underlying tech is ours, got 'stolen', and whatever is doing this is essentially our own fault?
